Parity Initialization Progress - CLI Created Logical Volume

Servus Community,

Yesterday we created a new logical volume in the Command Line Interface with the following command:

/opt/smartstorageadmin/ssacli/bin/ssacli ctrl slot=0 create type=ld drives=1I:1:17,1I:1:18,1I:1:19,1I:1:20,1I:1:21,1I:1:22,1I:1:23 raid=6

The volume was immediately visible in the web GUI of our ESX 6.5 and we were able to create a new data store there. This is also usable and we already install some VMDKs there.

What we don't know is the status of the Parity Initialization Progress display, which is still at 0%. For another volume, which already existed and was not created with the CLI, but in the controller BIOS, it will be displayed there: Initialization Completed:

For the new, CLI created volume we got this output:

And for the existing, controller BIOS created Volume, we got this output:

We assume that the output 0% is incorrect, but it would be interesting what we have to do, to update it, to the current correct value...

Thx & Bye Tom
